Rated 5 out of 5 by jamiejo2 This TV could NEVER disappoint me!!!!
The reviews on this website and Best Buy's almost kept me from buying this TV. In fact if it hadn't been for a mistake(the display TV was not the television that matched the boxes of TV's lined up by it for sale.) When we realized the mistake we called Walmart to see about exchanging for the other model-the one that had better reviews-but it was Out of Stock. I decided-let's hook this one up, check it out, see how it works and go from there. The picture is AMAZING! I am very impressed with the sound-the last TV we had-you had to turn it up to 50 to be able to hear it at all, this one sounds loud at 18. The price for it was awesome-$298. A few of the reviews we saw on this model was that the stand was flimsy. I asked my husband about that and he said-it's no more flimsy than any of the others. I am just really glad I gave this TV a chance, rather than jumping up and returning it based on one bad review in very few reviews that make it seem the worst of the Samsung products.
Rated 4 out of 5 by jpcjr92 Great TV!
I bought this TV at my local wal-mart for $298, and I have owned it for a couple of days now. I love the way the picture pops and is brighter than our 32" Vizio. My only real complaint is that the base is not very stable, so when you move it or dust it be very careful the tv will wobble.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FewClues A perfect purchase
A little trouble locating the package of screws but it was in there! It took 3 minutes to put the stand on and install the cables. It is now the center of attention in our entertainment center. Everything worked without fiddling. Its an equal to TV sets costing twice the price.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jimbob2000 Good enough tv
Good tv, but I think it's a little overpriced for the amount of features. On this site it says this tv has an optical digital audio out jack, but it definately does not. The tv speakers are junk, and when you turn the volume up so you can hear and understand what people are saying, it does that annoying crackly sound, like the speakers can't handle it. They'd be good speakers in a sound proof room, but I don't happen to have one of those handy. It's got good picture quality, and I ready enjoy the built in digital tuner. Good stuff there.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Whirlwinds Easy Setup - Great Picture
I bought this Samsung 32" TV 5 days ago at WalMart. I researched for 2 days on-line and decided between 2 different models of Vizio. I read all the reviews & it came down to the "sound." Vizio had the sound coming out of the bottom front of the TV, while others had the speakers in the side & sound came out of the bottom. Arriving at the store, I discovered the 2 TVs sitting side by side. The $328 TV had a much better, clearer picture than the $288 one had. I noticed the sound on the $328 came from the underside bottom, but it was good. I then turned that sound off & turned on the $288 one that had sound coming out the front. That was good too. I ended up buying the $328 TV because of the picture quality. While standing in line to pay for it, I noticed the box said "Samsung!" & I bought it. Took it home & had it set up in no time .. very easy .. power plug & HDMI plug. Had I researched the Samsung & discovered it only had 2 5-watt speakers instead of 10-watt, I probably wouldn't have bought it, but the speakers work great & you can change the setting to "Surround Sound." We also own a 46" Samsung which we absolutely love. Don't know why I considered Vizio, I guess because of the sound, but no problem. (By the way, we have satellite TV) Great picture, great sound .. great TV!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by DaniJ1 Great Deal!
I have been looking and researching a long time for a decent flat screen and happen to come across this at the store. This is the best deal I have seen (also purchased the 2 year warranty additional $20). The set-up was super simple and the clarity of the picture surpasses our old t.v. I am very impressed!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MJS26 Great TV for the money
I first purchased the RCA and had it one day and brought it right back to Walmart's....it was horrible.......for a few extra dollars I purchased the Samsung.......So happy I did............this is a great TV for the money.. Picture sound and hook up were easy.........
Rated 3 out of 5 by cozofdeath Surprises
We love Samsung and have decided to stock our house with three of their TVs and bluray players. The latest one we bought (4 days ago) was this model. It seemed like the others (picture looked decent on TV, same style) until we wanted to use a USB stick to put in a movie. The TV didn't even recognize it? All our others do but this one seems brain dead. To us, and my kids, it is almost pointless to have because my kids mainly watch movies we put on the thumb drives. To make our thinking of Samsung worse I tried multiple ways to contact Samsung and all so far have failed. My online costumer inquiry had sat their two days then disappeared. The online live chats are horrible. They are based in other country's and the people have absolutely no experience with technology. I have tried another email option and will wait for another response but I doubt it. Samsung doesn't even list this model TV on their site to support it!!! Our house is Samsunged out and all we want to know is why doesn't our TV support USB. I think we deserve just one answer!
My rating reflects us not being able to use the USB drive. We don't know how any of our movies look or sound. Like the other guy on here said, if your buying Samsung your on your own!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bryanmatt When the TV was turned on there was a white vertical line on the screen as well as a green horizontal line. The lines could not be removed. The TV was returned to Wal-Mart easily. However while waiting in line to make return I met a woman who had the same experience with the TV. I would not recommend the TV and the TV was echanged for a Vizio TV.
Rated 1 out of 5 by mar1etta WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!
I am a Senior Citizen and bought this Samsung TV for my bedroom. What a NIGHTMARE! After about 1 MONTH my TV stopped working. I had audio but NO PICTURE. My screen was completely black. I tried everything that was suggested in the trouble shooting section of the manual, but had no luck. I called Customer Service and that is when the nightmare really began. The service representative was VERY DISRESPECTFUL and was not willing to help at all. She told me it was MY RESPONSIBILITY to find a box to fit a 32" TV and mail it back to Samsung. She also said that it had to be PACKAGED PROPERLY according to Samsung's regulations. Whatever that means! She was supposed to e-mail me information for mailing and NEVER DID! Samsung's customer service is THE WORST I have ever dealt with. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND A SAMSUNG TV TO ANYONE. If you do buy one, please realize that you are on your own with NO HELP FROM SAMSUNG!
Rated 5 out of 5 by DHG0000 People have mentioned that the base is not stable. The real problem is the two screws that hold the base onto the vertical stand do not go in all the way before they get too tight and this allows the base to rock because it is not making firm contact with the vertical plate.
Before attaching the vertical plate to the base plate, take one of the screws and screw it into the base so you can see how far down it screws before it tightens up. Once it is as tight as you can get it, back the screw out and remove any of the plastic that has stuck to the screw threads. You will need to do this about 3 or 4 times. The screws should now be able to screwed all the way down and hold the vertical plate firmly.
I did not need to do this with the third screw that goes in from the back. And the other 4 screws went in without a problem also.
Rated 4 out of 5 by spdrweb That darn stand!
I just bought this tv on 11/25/11. I was orginally looking for a Phillips (what I have now). Looked at the Vizio, Sony, etc. I've always had a Samsung tube tv, so I thought what the heck, let me get this one. One word of caution, the stand is very wobbly. It's very simple to attach the stand to the tv, but you must ensure that the middle screw is secured to the tv or it will wobble horribly. I had to unscrew all the screws just to tighten the middle screw, it cut down on some of the wobble, but not much. If you're cleaning and need to move the tv, ensure that you lift it off the surface or the tv will wobble. Do not try to slide the tv over, the stand will not support it! Picture quality, sound, no problem. Really clear picture and I haven't hooked up the HDMI yet. This is probably better mounted on the wall.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Farmers2ndwife Very disappointed in this TV
There are 3 choices for voice quality, but there's no difference between choices. The picture quality is poor. Unable to adjust picture colors to satisfaction. Picture tones and hues are muddy. Background picture quality is grey & shows through any color changes I try to make. If I try to darken the background the picture is too dark. The picture has a lot of movement which makes you queasy watching it. I'm in the process of trying to return this TV. I thought Samsung was a quality product, but this TV doesn't live up to my expectations.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bbxbigben Great TV!
We set this up Christmas day as a gift for our parents. The picture and sound quality is great. The remote and on screen menus are easy to follow. Definitely worth the money to get a Samsung.
Rated 5 out of 5 by boater2 great tv
I ordered this TV on Black Friday for the sun/dining/computer room. The picture is clear, color is excellent and it is just the right size for the room. It was delivered earlier than expected. I would definitely buy another Samsung.
Rated 4 out of 5 by jazzyqueen1 great value
I like the tv ,the picture is good the only thing I don't like is the base stand for the tv is not secure it rocks when you touch it , you need to be careful not to tip it over , but other than that the tv works best with cable without it the chanel infomation has to be added every time you turn on the tv
Rated 4 out of 5 by Virda We did a lot of research before buying the Samsung and it rated high in the areas we were interested in. It hasn't disappointed us. Rather its enhanced our TV watching experience.
Rated 3 out of 5 by BadBoy15 Not Satisfied
I was expecting better picture quality. Very dissapointed with this tv. I am going to return it tomorrow and get a Sony instead.
Rated 4 out of 5 Great TV for the kitchen, good picture, and the sound goes up loud.
Rated 3 out of 5 by LeadvilleGuy Great Picture. Not enough Inputs
1st, I love the picture. 2nd, Great sound. Not sure why others gave it a bad wrap on the sound. When at 20 (of 100), it is plenty loud. The issue I have is that it shares the Composite and Component inputs. So you have one OR the other, but not both. So I could not hook up my DVD Player and my WII to the same device. HD Picture is one of the best! Really, it is. It has a Dynamic mode that is fantastic. Besides the lack of connectivity, I returned this TV because of some blown pixels. It started as a 'swosh' of pixels that you noticed when powered on #or with a white screen, like WII#, and turned into an oval of bad pixels #about 2 in wide, 1in hight#. Walmart gave a full refund #make sure you keep the box, and stuff#.
Rated 5 out of 5 by fixture Great value for a good product
Bought two at the same time....identicle quality from both. Great price, easy setup. Works great.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Irishwife82 This tv is exactly what you pay for. I would recommend this tv to a friend only if it is not the main tv in the house. The stand is not sturdy and it makes the tv wobble when you touch it. There is only one set of plugs for the av needs. I have a dvd player and a wii and each time I want to use one I have to unplug the audio/visual cables and switch. This is my biggest complaint on the tv especially when the kids want to watch tv, then play the wii, and then watch tv.
Rated 4 out of 5 by KryssaL We bought 3 of these TVs at the same time for Christmas gifts for our kids and 1 of them I had to exchange. The other two work great. Picture is great and the kids love the clarity of their video games. The one I exchanged powered up and was on for about 30 min and then cut off on its own never to come on again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by HarleyPepper Great Gift for my parents
I bought this TV for my parents for Christmas and they absolutely loved it, every time that I call them my mom seems to be in the bed with her laptop watching it.
I couldn't have gotten them a better gift.
The TV was ordered online and was delivered on time.. Thanks Wal-Mart
Rated 5 out of 5 by ServantoftheKing Meets all my expectations! Hooked to DirecTV with HDMI cable. No problem with sound or video. Located in bedroom, played at night in a dark room. TV has three settings for different lightning arrangements. Everything worked out wonderful for me. Pray your new TV will too.
Rated 4 out of 5 by believerinchrist1 Bad sound
This TV does not have a very good sound system. It sounds like it's in a tunnel. However, the picture is very good. Some of the buttons aren't marked so you have to learn but trial and error what they do. We've only had it for a month so can't say much else about it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by kyliemom10 flat screen samsung
My old tv had lines in the picture so obviously this one is better in that aspect..but the volume doesn't seem loud enough on some channels and too loud on others. the picture is good but all i have is antenna and i was hoping by getting hd that i would have more channels not so far..(I was told if i have a HD TV that I wouldn't have to have a converter box for my antenna) I don't pick up anything wo it..I don't think I've got anything hooked up wrong so I don't understand why I don't have more channels or maybe that was just a myth..overall I like the TV.
Rated 4 out of 5 by marvsand Good T.V. for bedroom.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ilovemy1daughter Nice TV but..
I am a fan of Samsung TVs
Picture quality nice
Sound seems fine
Wobbly base- the TV is not stable- a little worried
No side port and only one component port. Has a USB port but have not tried yet. So I can't plug Wii and DVD player in together using the component ports.
Overall- good TV for second bedroom or kitchen
Rated 5 out of 5 by renovatingmom Can't beat this
Great value, great tv. Highly recommend this one. We bought two and are very satisfied.
